CHMC Announces Certification Of Lifeline Providers


Ogdensburg – Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center LIFELINE recently announced that Ramona Kennedy, Lifeline Program Manager, and Rondalyn Jacobs, Lifeline Assistant, have become certified Philips Lifeline AutoAlert providers.

They have completed a full training curriculum and certification program designed and offered by Philips Lifeline.

AutoAlert is the first medical alert pendant that can automatically call for help if it detects a fall, even when the subscriber is immobilized or doesn’t push his or her button.

To receive this certification, Kennedy and Jacobs completed all of the training modules and passed a final assessment focused on AutoAlert’s fall detection capabilities and how the service helps seniors live more independently in their homes.

Throughout this certification process, Kennedy and Jacobs demonstrated their knowledge of the AutoAlert option and expertise in presenting this product for at-risk seniors in the community, according to a representative from the hospital.
